Arlington: Pathway wins Arlington Saturday feature


Solid Illinois-bred grass mare Pathway edged Indiana shipper Babes Bridge to post a head victory in race 6, Saturday's feature at Arlington, a high-end turf allowance with an $100K claiming option. Pathway, in for the tag for trainer Christine Janks, was hardly mind-blowing, but she finished up with a final furlong in 11:75 or so and was just good enough to best improving Babes Bridge It. The turf and two-turn experiment did not go well for graded-stakes-class synthetic sprinter Dr. Zic, who pulled hard and faded late, checking in 7th.
